number of people out there are circling the wagons. they see the government coming to collect their guns, and they're preparing for fight. the only thingy figure is that movement, crude as it may be to throw these two issues together toward personal freedom, toward individual autonomy is growing, profoundly on the right as well as the left. people want to make their own decisions. they do. and it may be dangerous for society as a whole to allow this when it comes to gun buying, but there row visit. one bet you can make on america we are still a cowboy country. we like to get around in our own cars, live in our separate houses, read whatever, see whatever, pretty much do whatever. and the difference here is doing harm to others. two people getting married doesn't hurt someone else's marriage, nor does it reduce its reverence or love. having a gun in the wrong hands, freedom for that person can mean death for lots of others. and that is where the desire for freedom jumps the tracks. that's where our cowboy urge need wyatt earp to come in and clean up dodge city. and that's "hardball" for n

government has already won about 50 criminal cases and collected more than $5.5 billion by finding undeclared offshore accounts. and you have to wonder, is this just the beginning? the moral of the story. what's wrong with having your money here in the united states? nothing. joining me now is howard dean, former governor of vermont and also the former chairman of the dnc. governor, good to have you with us. >> thanks, ed, for having me on. >> this is kind of long overdue, isn't it? >> it is, and it's a great thing. it's not going to put a big dent in the deficit. the real reason it's important is because the morale in this country's been eroded by the enormous gap between the wealthy, who don't play by the same rules as everybody else, and ordinary people who are making a living. and this is going to make the wealthy folks pay -- and not all wealthy folks are doing this, but there's a small percentage that are, and they're now going to pay their fair share. this is really important for making this country work. it's not going to raise gazillions of dollars to deal with the deficit but they a

. unfortunately the truth of the matter is the united states government over these regulatory authority over these foreign flag cruise ships is not very effective. and when you board a cruise ship, you're really dependent on that line and how it operates. and you are a smart passenger if you check out in advance the safety record of these various cruise lines. >> how has the safety record of carnival been in your estimation? >> as i said there were three lines in my time as chairman. in this particular situation, we see 4,000 souls. that's as you know the faa has grounded the 787 over two incidents and we have a situation here in which 10 or 11 787s of peoples' health and safety has been endangered over the past few days. this is not because the cruise industry is not aware with there are fires. unfortunately there is no redundancy on these ships to provide power for them to operate in situations like this. >> that's what i was talking about a bit earlier. not so much redundancy but systems that there would be put in place that the engine would shut down so it wouldn't, you know, destroy any
